Electronic Health Recordkeeping Integration

E-FORCSE, Florida Prescription Drug Monitoring Program

On March 19, 2018, Governor Rick Scott signed House Bill 21 into law permitting authorized users to request and receive information from the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) system through an electronic health recordkeeping (EHR) system.

E-FORCSE is collaborating with Appriss Health, the service provider for E-FORCSE, to provide this integration option to all health care practitioners in the State utilizing a service called PMP Gateway. The PMP Gateway facilitates communication, information transfer, integration, and support for the state approval process and the EHR vendor development process.

Connecting through the PMP Gateway will enable health care practitioners to query their specific patient's controlled substance dispensing information within their electronic clinical workflow. This integration will help healthcare practitioners have accurate, relevant and timely PDMP information at the point of care to make better informed clinical decisions. In additon, providers who participate in the initiative will also receive NarxCare, which is a decision support and analytics platform. This next step with E-FORCSE will help prescribers and dispensers better assess patient risk and help make more informed prescibing and dispensing decisions.

Please review the Quick Reference Guide and Integration User Guide regarding our electronic health recordkeeping integration project.
